112- Math Modeling with Digital Media

Thursday, November 13, 2014: 2:00 PM-3:00 PM
B21C (Greater Richmond Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Dan Meyer

We make enormous promises to our students that mathematics models the world they live in, that math has power in their world. We attempt to make good on that promise with word problems that look nothing like that world and look nothing like modeling as it’s practiced by mathematicians. In this session we’ll learn how digital photos and videos can help us engage and challenge our students in the modeling practice of CCSSM.
